We are really pleased you had such a good tour and experience of Oxford. However, your tour was not with Tours of Oxford for Discerning Travellers. We run 2 hour pre-booked private tours. No matter, the important thing is your enjoyment of our fab City via a walking tour. That's what truly counts!

This tour experience was excellent from beginning to end. Before my Oxford day, Mr. Chris Peters contacted me directly by e-mail and gave me information about where to meet and what to expect for the day--so helpful. The tour was lovely and Chris answered my (many!) questions

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, recommendation and appreciation of our pre-tour info to fellow travellers. It goes without saying that you were, in turn, excellent and enjoyable company, full of questions, comments and appreciations as we surfed the centuries in this beguiling enigmatic place called Oxford! I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your subsequent electronic gratuity - far and above any outlay for entrance fees on the day! All much appreciated.

First time in Oxford and we were so lucky to have Chris Peters as our guide. With a general interest in art, history and British politics Chris made our tour just what we wanted. A walking encyclopaedia with humour and wit. Thanks Chris!
